Directions of this Vegan Spaghetti Recipe:

  1. To make spaghetti with tomato sauce, start by preparing the sauce. Pour the extra virgin olive oil in a pan with the peeled and halved garlic clove (1), so you can remove the core and make the scent more delicate. Cook for 2 minutes over high heat, add the peeled tomatoes (2) and salt (3).

  2. Spaghetti Recipe Sauce

    Make Sure Oil Covers Bottom of Pan Evenly.

  3. Cover with a lid and cook for at least 1 hour over very low heat: the sauce should simmer gently (4). Mix it from time to time. After this time, remove the garlic (5) and pass the tomatoes through a sieve (6) to obtain a smooth and homogeneous puree.

  4. Spaghetti Recipe Sauce

    Tip: Use Strainer with Fine Mesh.

  5. Pour the sauce (7) back into the pan, turn the heat to very low and add the basil leaves (8). After a few minutes, turn off the sauce and keep it warm. All you have to do now is cook the pasta in plenty of boiling salted water (9).

  6. Spaghetti Recipe Sauce

    Tip: Use Separate Pot for Pasta.

  7. Drain the spaghetti al dente directly into the sauce (10) and stir for a few moments over high heat to mix everything together (11). Your spaghetti with tomato sauce is ready, all you have to do is serve it, garnished with fresh basil to taste (12)!

  8. Spaghetti Recipe Sauce

    Tip: Use Fresh Basil Leaves for a Sweet Flavor.

Plating Suggestions for our Easy Spaghetti Recipe

You can prepare the sauce a little in advance or keep it in the refrigerator for up to 2-3 days, provided it is well covered with plastic wrap or in an airtight glass container. If you prefer you can also freeze the sauce.
A tip for the spaghetti recipe sauce is to cook the tomato sauce for longer. This usually makes for a tastier sauce. For more intense color, add a little tomato paste.
